How to sell your Bellevue home successfully in any market.
Sell your Bellevue home using the 3-P System.
You would be right in trusting to sell your Bellevue home with Gerhard Ade because of his 25-year career in design and marketing. But perhaps more important is his track record of selling homes as quickly as feasible at the highest possible price. The main reason for his success lies in the system he’s created to list and sell homes.
Price Your Home to Sell.
“What’s my home worth?” This is the first question a home seller asks. A comparable Market Analysis provides the basis for establishing a price range. However, the final answer to the actual list price depends on the successful execution of the other two Ps, Preparation, and Presentation. Pricing is linked to timing. Local competition may change the listing price at the last moment. Equally important is a list price that attracts buyers looking for a home at the low and high end of a specific price range. The day of the listing the answer as to pricing will be self-evident.
Prepare Your Home to Sell.
How well do you know your home? Not sure? When you prepare your home to sell you will remember much you’ve forgotten and learned some things you never knew. Preparation involves research, making to-do-lists, accounting for paperwork, and deciding what’s worth repairing and improving. The successful selling of a home is always the result of teamwork between the seller and the real estate agent. Nowhere is teamwork more necessary than in the getting the home ready for sale.
Present Your Home to Sell.
This is when you reap the benefits of your good work. We know what it takes to sell your Seattle home in the prevailing market conditions, and we’ve kept tabs on our competition. You’ve made repairs and improvements. Your home looks good inside and out. Now we get to show off the place. When you present your home to sell, a good listing agent makes all the difference.
Homes are sold through two channels – the agent-broker channel and the public channel. The first is known and narrow; that’s the MLS. The second is vast and varied; that’s the Internet. In practice, everything starts with the listing on the MLS. It triggers the export of the data and description to MLS member Web sites and countless real estate portals. The successful home sale at the highest possible price in the fastest time depends on exposing your home in both channels to the maximum potential.
What one of Gerhard’s clients said
Selling a unique property is never easy. This was true for our 10-acre farm on the Olympic Peninsula. Despite that, Gerhard Ade’s marketing attracted the attention of prospective buyers from as far as Texas, New York, and California. Over 2,000 people watched the YouTube video. Gerhard’s photography is outstanding! Yes, and we sold the place. Thanks to Gerhard’s negotiating skills, we successfully completed a fairly complex transaction.
